Wine AdvocateThe 2010 La Tour du Pin is showing incredibly well. A blend of 75% Merlot and the rest Cabernet Franc from just over 17 acres, this wine is a sleeper of the vintage. It offers up loads of blueberry, black raspberry and boysenberry fruit, stunning opulence, freshness and precision, despite its flesh and fat. Pure, fragrant and -open for business,- so to speak, this is a gorgeous wine to drink over the next 10-15 years.

Wine Enthusiast90-92 Austere, with a dark character dominated by major tannins. These push the spice character of the wine, the sweet fruit following on behind.

Wine SpectatorFrankly ripe, with a slightly jammy edge to the blueberry, plum and boysenberry notes, which slowly give way to a solid charcoal spine and a lingering alder note on the finish, which is needed to offset the up-front feel of the fruit. Best from 2014 through 2024.
